As it’s holiday time and I’m going to be celebrating with friends and family on whom I want to focus my attention, I’m sharing another archival tasting note here now. I thought this wine was interesting enough to save these notes, and I hope you find them worth a read.
Before I post the notes, though, please accept my warmest wishes to all of my friends and fellow bloggers for a VERY MERRY HOLIDAY SEASON!!
Varietal: Chenin Blanc
Appellation: Western Cape, South Africa
Price: $9.99 at Whole Foods
Notes: This Chenin Blanc was unexpectedly dry at 13.5% alcohol. What a nice surprise! It was pale yellow with scents of nectarine, honey and dusty floral notes. Acidity was good, and it was light-bodied. On the palate I found nectarine, lemon grass and hints of spice.
